It only slightly pains me to report that recent news brought to my attention suggests that the E3 2005 pictures first suggesting a Gamecube title, later tentatively turned to Wii, has probably been trashed. Even Nintendo officials, as reported by Go Nintendo, say that there is no longer anything in development.

Quite honestly, after three years this comes as little surprise to any of us here. The video we were supplied with showed definite potential, but it seems that was just never to be. It is curious to wonder what exactly lead to the fall of the game, especially in the eyes of HAL Labs.
Now all we know for certain is that the tentative Kirby Ultra Star is being made for DS, with a minimal chance of having any new content at all, and another strange thought as to the motivation behind it. However, if I may quote something a bit old but still valid; it is another curious thought to wonder if HAL is really behind that too.
Hello all. I just wanted to be the first of the KRR staff to wish everyone here a Merry Christmas. The day itself is only five days away, and amazingly I am still eternally busy! The most of us here are still in the school, meaning we'll be treated to a holiday vacation soon. Mine starts only tomorrow and yet it feels so distant with all the work that school is shoving down my throat, but I'm managing. Too much busywork and not enough actual learning - what is wrong with the education system these days?
Over the break, I'll finally be able to bring updates to the multimedia area in earnest like before. But for now, I'll just spread around a little timely cheer, to help lighten the news I had to break the other day.
You may find the full version to that song here, with much love sent to Seanstar, who made it.
A further note to all Oekaki and Fanart gallery artists that starting on Saturday and Sunday, all new Christmas Themed Kirby fanart will get instant link-to's in the Fan Showcase up until Boxing Day.
